That’s our goal as quilters.
I love the back of Tilde. I love the subtle play of color of the gray on the yellow/orange.
Did you know that my original intention was to use a bright teal blue on the back?
I wanted that dancing color contrast. You know where you see movement.
As I started quilting the teal kept popping up to the front. I’d tweak the tension.
Blue popped to the front.
After the 5th time I quit using the blue and switched to the gray.
The blue was a 50 weight cotton; the gray is a 60 weight polyester. A lighter thread.
Thread change – no more pokies – a happier quilter.Happier Quilt.
PS wait til you see Keith’s next quilt!

I find that the 50/60 wt poly usually “cures” the pokies for me. That is gorgeous!!!!!
It never gets old. Each time I see it, or a picture of it, I see something new.
Awesome !!! Teri, as I look at this quilt I’m wondering how you actually got the whole design on the quilt. Did you use stencils and how about your marking tools. This quilt looks quite large and I was wondering if it was hard to handle when quilting or maybe you have a special technique when quilting a large quilt. Do you have any classes planned on teaching this process. Couldn’t stop looking at this artistic accomplishment.
